I always start by writing that I purchased these shoes for my nearly 8 year-old child with profound Developmental Disabilities and some significant gait / gross motor impairments; he also has Sensory issues, so I am pretty hyper vigilant about how things (appear to) feel to him as he cannot articulate to us if something hurts or is uncomfortable. His foot is average width and he has slight pronation of his right ankle. That being said: Love. These are absolutely adorable, with fun Spring-y colors. I was concerned they wouldn't be flexible enough (the soles, I mean), that they would encourage a flat-footed, clompy kind of walk. WRONG. I was delighted with how well they bend, both with me first bending the shoe, and then with watching my son walk around and do his thing (which includes LOTS of bouncing on his mini-trampoline). We won't get shoes for him with shoelaces as it's simply too dangerous for a lace to become undone, resulting in a trip and fall; additionally, it makes our (caregivers) lives much easier to slip on his shoes and then secure with either velcro or a pull-tie (like we see on other Keen models), not having to "argue" with him to keep his foot stationary for us to tie. The velcro on this shoe is secure (meaning it isn't coming undone on its own as we've all had experience with); it's also wide enough so that we can really get good coverage for securing the shoe to his foot (there have been others [Puma comes to mind] where we didn't feel as if the shoe were tight enough, that there was still too much room for his foot to wiggle inside the shoe). Very pleased with this shoe, with the fit, with the flex, and with its darling appearance.

Perfect shoe for an active little boy. Removable insiole helps you know when he is growing out of them.

This is the third time I've purchased these shoes because we love them so much! Each time my son outgrows a pair, we get another. He isn't very skilled at shoe lace tying yet, so this Velcro is a great help. They are sturdy shoes that get outgrown before they get worn out. We love them.

These shoes are AWESOME! Super versatile style, color and material. They hold up to a very active 3 year old who will jump in any mud puddle he can find! We will definitely replace these as he grows with another pair in a larger size.

We have been wearing this shoe style since my little guy could walk. He started kindergarten last week with these and they are working great. Keens work for him because he has a very wide flat foot. The construction holds up great on a rocky Alaska playground and the grey hides the dirt!

I have bought several pairs of Keen's for my son in this style. They fit well and are true to size. The reinforced toe is great and he can easily get them on and off by himself. I would recommend this shoe to any friend.

LOVE these shoes. This is my son's second pair of similar shoes. The first pair lasted all year, so this was my go to purchase for back to school this year. Plus, my son gets compliments all the time!

Very cute shoes on my 3 1/2 year old. Sturdy and seem well made. They were purchased to run around in at an outdoor camp, and the sand and lake water has made them a little stiff getting the foot in/out. But they are certainly holding up.

First off I have to tip my hat to Zappos customer service. I was sent a defective pair and they took care of the problem like they were my friends and not a company. The next day I had another pair of shoes. These Keen shoes are adorable. I ordered the Brindle/Blue color and they match with just about everything. I think they run a bit big. My son wears a 10½ in Nike and a 9 in Converse (Converse runs a size big) and a 10 in Target brand shoes. The Keens 10 fits him but they are a bit big and slide down a bit as he walks. If he would wear socks they would be fine but he will not. They are a bit bigger than the Nike 10½. For being canvas shoes they have great arch support (more than the zero you get in almost every other canvas shoe). They look like they will last forever. These were on sale when I bought them or else I probably would not have spent this much on toddler shoes but seeing the quality of these I know he will be able to hand them down to his brother and probably cousin after that and since they look so cute I will probably order these again in the future. My favorite part about them is the blue toecap since it does not show dirt as easily as the white Converse ones do.

These are great shoes. They're durable and great looking, and my boys (age 2 and 4) can put them on by themselves (well, the 2 year old almost can, anyway). Love the velcro and the reinforced toes!

My boys are wearing these for a few weeks now and I'm very happy. They are sturdy -real good quality. They run true to size. They are adorable and funky and I get loads of compliments. I put them in the washing machine and they come out looking like new too!

We bought these shoes for their vulcanized rubber. They are really durable. My son was going through a pair of shoes every 3-4 weeks. He's been wearing these shoes for a month with no wear to the toe area!

These shoes are tough! They're nice and wide enough for my wide footed kiddo too. The only complaint I have is that they're a little hard to get on without the tongue slipping down. My son doesn't have the patience to remember to hold it and then slip them on, so I have to help him.

Great shoe for my son with wide feet and a high instep (just made it though, so not overly roomy). The blue toecap, while it will help the shoe last for a long time, definitely scuffs and shows wear easily.

We buy Keens because they normally fit my child's wide feet well. These fit good but could use a little extra length in the velcro strap. It just makes it.

I was happy to finally find a shoe for my 5 year old that doesn't make him an advertising shill for Disney. I love the old school look of this shoe combined with arch support and a sturdy toe cap that isn't offered by Converse. The price is a shock but having been on the receiving end of hand-me-down Keens from an older cousin I know they last. This shoe is a little more narrow than the two strap Keen Sula Leather which I purchased for my son's twin Flintstone-footed brother. The positive of the 2 straps of elastic verses the second velcro strap-it holds to a more narrow foot. The negative of this design decision is that the "tongue" gets smushed down towards the toe when a foot gets jammed into it. Because of the strap across the top it can be tricky to hold onto the tiny bit of tongue exposed to keep it from slipping. This also makes it hard for the child to put the shoes on him or herself without the discomfort of mushed up material in the toe box. I am thinking of tacking the tongue to the elastic to alleviate the issue. Other than that my son and I are both very happy with the shoe.

Good true fit. Goes great with a pair of jeans. Only negative, after the first time wearing them, where the strap goes through to fasten/buckle them...there is a metal ring that the strap goes through and it leaves a black wear mark on the canvas strap. It is on the underside of the strap (not visible when you wear them) but still...kind of gives them an instant used look when they are brand new.

These shoes are super cute so I bought two pairs. I have twin boys. They fit great and looked great but the black rubber edge around the bottom of the sole started peeling off the first time they wore them outside. This happened to both pairs so I don't think it was a fluke. Thankfully, I got them from Zappos so I was able to exchange them without any hassle. I contacted Keen first and they deferred me to Zappos. They didn't seem to care that they made an inferior product.

Really cute and appears to be well-made. Unfortunately, my son has narrow feet and these, although not nearly as wide as most Keens, are just not narrow enough and his heel slips a lot. I wish they had worked out because they are adorable!

I bought these for my son who wears 13 in Stride Rite. I got a 13 and they were way too big. Had to send them back but now not available in 12! I forgot to order both sizes. Learned my lesson! These are super cute and he loves a canvas shoe for summer, because leather makes his feet too hot. I'll look at the other Keen canvas shoes, but order a 12 instead this time.

Ah, I got these shoes again in a 12. My son wears a 13. They are still huge. I'm wondering if these shoes are made apart from other Keens. They are just gigantic. I'm not going to do this again with another size. Just giving up and getting a refund.

This would have been my son's 3 pair of this exact shoe. Sizes 11, 12, & 13. For some reason the size 13 fit very badly. I ordered another new style similar to these prior to purchasing these and the fit awkwardly too. They both puckered in the tongue area. I also ordered my son his 4-5th pair of Newport etc. sandals this summer & had to return them because they weren't right. I used to be able to order any pair of Keens & knew they would be perfect but that is no longer the case. I don't know what the deal is, if they have sold their company or cut back on quality, they just do not have the same fit as they once did and as I said before, the quality has changed for the worse. I am giving up on Keen shoes.
